2009 New Nail Care Breakthrough: New Zealand
wool protein biotechnology is the breakthrough
ingredient in a new generation of nail and hand care
products launched by Dermelect Cosmeceuticals.
Keratin, the main protein in fingernails and skin, diminishes as we age and expose our nails to everyday wear and tear. The peptide ingredient ProSina™ is extracted from
wool in a gentle yet powerful process keeping the
protein intact maintaining its potency without damaging
the amino acids that make it up. The integrity of the
extracted peptide (keratin protein) is in a near-perfect
state yielding unprecedented age-defying,
strengthening and softening properties for the nails and
hands. This high molecular weight protein fraction is also
used for a myriad of non-cosmetic applications,
including bone grafts, fixation devices, wound dressings,
adhesives, and fibers.
